Salmon Salad Sandwiches
A quick and healthy no-cook meal, these sandwiches are fun to eat on a busy night. If you want some extra pizzaz, try topping them with sliced tomatoes and added a layer of tortilla chips for extra crunch!
- 1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise (or use any variety),
- 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard (use wheat/gluten-free if needed)
- 1 tsp. honey
- 1/2 lemon juice only, about 2 Tbsp.
- 15 oz. canned wild Alaskan pink salmon drained
- 2 cup stalks celery finely chopped 1 total
- 6 whole wheat hamburger buns (use wheat/gluten-free, if needed)
- 1 - 2 tomato sliced (optional)
- 1 - 2 cup tortilla chips (use wheat/gluten-free, if needed)(store bought or homemade), optional
- In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, mustard, honey, and lemon juice. In a medium bowl, combine the salmon, celery, and mayonnaise mixture. (At this point you can refrigerate the salmon salad for up to 24 hours until you are ready to serve it.)
- Put a scoop of the salmon salad in each bun, top it with tomato and/or tortilla chips, if desired, and serve it immediately.
Do Ahead or Delegate: Juice the lemon, combine the ingredients for the dressing and refrigerate, chop the celery, slice the tomatoes if using, or fully prepare and refrigerate the salad. Scramble Flavor Booster: Add a thin slice of onion to each sandwich or add ½ cup minced onion and/or 1 Tbsp. capers to the salmon salad. Tip: According to a 2013 report card from the Center for Science in the Public Interest, Americans are eating, on average, 450 calories more per day than they did in 1970. One simple way to cut back on the number of calories you are eating each day is to make sure you plan your meals ahead of time (just like we love to do at The Scramble). Planning ahead will help you avoid last minute takeout orders and trips to the corner restaurant, which are typically much higher in calories, sodium, fat, and price than a home-cooked meal.
